Brian Wilson has more original Beach Boys than the Beach Boys in his current band. Al Jardine is in his band so together with Brian, Brian’s band has twice as many original Beach Boys as Mike Love’s Beach Boys branded band.

Wilson is one on the road for one last time to perform his Beach Boys classic ‘Pet Sounds’ from start to finish. The 1966 album was his masterpiece, inspiring The Beatles to try harder in the studio with the result for them being ‘Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band’. (The Stones then tried to outdo The Beatles and failed miserably with the horrid ‘Satanic Majesties’ disaster).

Brian Wilson is also performing Beach Boys classics in the show with only two solo songs in the 38 song setlist her perform in Auckland, New Zealand last week before coming to Australia.
